Adaware Review – Is Adaware Total Worth Buying?
Adware is a kind of malware that’s not quite as harmful as system-destroying viruses or data-harvesting spyware, however it’s equally irritating and intrusive. Adware is also used to perform unwanted tasks on your device. For example it could record the places you go to show ads that are specific to these areas. Adware creators can earn revenue through the display of targeted advertisements without the need to sell their product directly.
As opposed to other similar products, adaware review offers only Windows protection – the free version isn’t compatible with Mac or iOS devices. It provides 24/7 technical support for users of the Total and Pro packages. The basic package includes real-time antivirus and behavior monitoring, as well as automatic downloading and a robust fire barrier. It doesn’t include protection for websites and emails as well as any other features such as a file shredder.
The software performed well in the AV-test lab tests. It was able to eliminate all known threats and block 97% of attacks with a 0-day duration. These numbers are impressive, however they’re not as impressive than those of the top security suites.
Adaware Total is currently 30 percent more expensive than competition. That’s because the company has chosen to stop offering a variety of protection levels and instead bundle their tools into a single package. It means that you only get one license, but you are able to access a large collection of PC maintenance and privacy features, such as the removal of tracking cookie optimization tools that speed up Windows boot times, and the ability to prevent apps from accessing your microphone or camera.
